This time, I knit up my Thrummed Rainbow Mitts in a diagonal pattern. I used the magic loop method again, and things went pretty smoothly since I charted the pattern ahead of time.
|I had to retake this cute photo because I realized that he had two different mittens on!|
first post, you already have seen the pair on the bottom, where the rainbow works vertical. My second pair was worked diagonal this time (see top mittens). I know they are both cute, but which do you prefer?
I have gotten a crazy amount of compliments on Facebook, in person, and have also started receiving requests for me to make their kids a pair! Honestly, I still have to make my, and my husband's pair still.

As usual, everyone was dying (or dyeing) to see the insides! It's like a dark, dirty secret waiting to come out.
Have a good Wednesday. I am starting the revision of a sock pattern that will be re-released.
